Thursday 26th October Woburn to Woburn Sands & back led by Tony M

This 7 mile walk had 9 walkers & followed Tony's usual route from Woburn car park, past Marylands to Horsemoor Farm. We then ascend the hill to the reservoir where we stopped for a water break. We then carried on to cross Longslade Lane and entered New Wavenden Heath near a flock of brown sheep.. We followed the track parallel to the lane to the car park picnic area where we stopped for a coffee break and photo..

We then continued through the wood, past the sand pit to descend to Sandy Lane & hence down into Woburn Sands where we crossed the main road to the Fir Tree pub. There we met 4 non-walkers who had driven directly to the pub. After lunch we followed the usual route back to Woburn including the decent of the 84 steps. We passed Birchmoor Farm where the Duke's Range Rover HOW3N was again parked.. We continued to Birchmoor Green where we observed the miniature railway in one of the cottage gardens. As it is no longer possible to cross the brook into the playing fields we continued to Newport Rd & hence through the village to the car park.
